I was unable to stop myself buying yet another uke - and this is my latest baby. This parent’s unbiased opinion: she’s a beautiful baby :)
Featuring Kala’s consistent high quality, this concert size banjo ukulele has that lovely warm vintage timbre and can project its sound well in ensembles. Banjo ukes have been around for decades, but this is a relatively new offering from Kala. The hoop is 8’ diameter and, unlike cheaper banjo ukes, the back is closed. Great for a bit of bluesy fingerpicking! It comes with a padded gig bag. Hear one being played (badly!) at: www.singforjoy.org.nz/ukemp3/Banjolele.mp3. Here's review from Amazon: "Excellent Banjo Ukulele. Superb combination of a banjo and a Uke. Great, great sound and very easy to play. Setting the bridge was a bit intimidating (not having perfect pitch), but a there are several good youtube videos that can guide you along. The packaging was pure bomb proof. It was in the included case, inside the factory box, inside another huge box with bubblewrap. As this was a gift, I wanted to be sure that there were no Christmas morning disasters. Not even close. This is a closed back BanjoUke (Banjolele?) and it fairly heavy. Apparently one can remove the back to reduce the weight, but I wouldn't want to mess with the tone of this lovely Kala instrument. Very pleased with the seller, Kala, and the end product. If you play the Uke, and you know you want to add to your collection, this is one to really think about. Enjoy."
